I am assuming that the following is the question you had asked :
"i have had blinker unit and blinkers replaced by auto electrician and since that job when i brake while riding at night my headlight and my tail light both flick off and on which is a bit disconcerting ---- possible solution please?"
I will attempt to assist but need to know do the head and taillight flash on and off as if like a blinker/indicator or do the just go out when you activate the brakes? If so which brake - front or rear or both?
Furthermore it would be helpful if you have a multimeter or at least a test lamp handy.
Use the "add a comment" function
First off, there is a yellow/white wire leading from the dimmer switch on the left handlebar. Disconnect this wire from the switch. It should have a single line connector which just pulls apart. With the bike running pull the brake and test the voltage at the wire end(not the switch end). Is there voltage with the brake lever pulled?

    As a preliminary "guess" it would seem that the brake switch is causing a short circuitwhen pressed. The most obvious place to check would be at the taillight. Make certain that the black/white and white/black wires at the taillight are not shorted together. Disconnect the 3-way plug at the taillight and see if the problem persists.
    I look forward to hearing from you when you have access to the bike again.

How do I stop paying for my son's Netflix account from my credit card if I don't have his account information.


File a dispute with the credit card company. You can call them at the number on the back of the card. Netflix will have to produce information about the account to prove it is a legit charge. You may have to do this for each month's charge.

Suzuki gs500e all electrics work exept both brake lights how do i fix it


Electrical issues are difficult to fix in general. I have a Suzuki GSX-F Katana which has similar electrical mapping. When I was fixing my brake lights, I found the connection underneath the rear faring behind the seat. You'll need to make sure those wires are there, undamaged, and connected. Otherwise locate the fuse box and make sure the fuse for the rear brakes is still good. If you like my solution please feel free to give me a thumbs up!

Do I need a credit card for my son to play online?


Hello my friend, regarding on your concern you have a choice if you want your son a credit card or not in order to play online games. My recommendation is either you can give a credit card your son to play online games cause most of the games requires premium account and when we talk about premium account it involves money so your has then advantage to purchase a premium account to play online games he wants to play but you can limit its credit online or you can create an extended account or extension account in your credit card so for you to control his account. Also you can open an account in Paypal cause in the new trend using online credit card, paypal is also other people's choice. By opening the paypal account you can pay or purchase item via online using your paypal as your credit account. Finally, you can also play online games for free cause their are online games that are for free. You can search it in the net, visit www.google.com then search online games that are for free.
Hope this solution helps answer your concern. If you need more assistance just contact me or reply to this post. If this solution is able to help you in your concern please rate this solution according to the level that this solution helps your concern. Thanks

50 free music downloads offer that came with my son mp3 player.


Sorry to tell you, but those deals are often promotionals for the music sites. They want a credit card because after you use your 50 free downloads or go beyond a certain number of days trial period they will start charging you if you do not cancel your account. Without a credit card they have no way to charge you after your promo expires...so yeah, there is no way to do it without a card...sorry.
